“I think that VR is opening up music and making it more accessible,” Hammack shares. “It has the ability to open up so many doors for people. It’s so cool that on the other side of this camera you’re in your comfort zone and you get to be a part of this magic even though we don’t get to be in the same room. We still get to have magic together.”

Entries for the MVAN Virtual Reality Sweepstakes close 6/17 at 12 pm CST. To learn more about the available prizes and how to enter visit
